Chelsea now want to sign Matheus Nunes
Chelsea are reportedly looking to beat Liverpool to the signing of Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Matheus Nunes.
The Blues are determined to bolster their midfield department this month and they are eyeing an experienced signing before the deadline.
Benfica's Enzo Fernandez was initially the top target for the Blues before they turned their attention to Brighton & Hove Albion's Moises Caicedo.
With both proving to be expensive, they are now interested in landing Nunes, who has also been on the radar of Liverpool in recent months.
Jurgen Klopp's side have been planning for a summer approach, but may have to prepone their move with the Blues stepping up their interest.
Nunes joined Wolverhampton Wanderers from Sporting Lisbon for £38 million last summer and he has been one of their top performers.
The Portuguese has not had the freedom to express himself due to Wolves' lowly position and could excel with the switch to Chelsea or Liverpool.
Wolves are likely to demand around £60m to part ways with him.
